About that Novel…

It’s November 27th. I have four days (yes, I’m counting today) to reach my 50,000 word count. Guess how many I have to go?

A little over 18,000.

Yeah. That damn flu sidelined my writing efforts. After all, when you’re busy staring at the ceiling, wondering if this is how you’re going to die, it’s tough to concentrate on a novel (I kid, but only a little).

However, I am nothing if not stubborn. So this blog? May be neglected for a few days more. But hey, you’re all busy. You won’t miss me, right?

Just go on back to all your Black Friday/Cyber Weekend/Manic Monday holiday shopping. I’ll be back (with bleeding fingers) before you know it.

But before you go, explain to me what on earth makes getting up at 4 a.m. to go shopping worth it. I can’t think of anything I want bad enough to make that trip.

    Nope. Can’t think of one good reason to get up at the a** crack of dawn to hang around irate shoppers when the same deals can be had online. But that’s just me. Good luck with the rest of your novel!!!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks that’s insane. I heard some people actually camped out. No…thank you!

    18,000 words left? That’s nothing for you! Okay, truly, I have no idea, because i am not a writer, BUT! I believe in you!

    I am impressed with everyone that took on NaNoWriMo. I look forward to hearing more about the novel.

      I’m going to fall about 10000 words short. But hey, I get credit for trying!
